I figured, I’d link my first article for the entertaining website the Scrib here on my website. For those thinking of trying yage/ ayahuasca please read this and feel free to comment. This is not for everyone, and please, be sure to investigate the proposed shamanic retreat and be safe.
Not normally one for any substance of this sort, I was convinced by my friend (mentioned in the piece) and her parents when we were in her hometown of Iquitos, Peru. This is their culture and it was to be an honour for me. I did experience quite a strong reaction, it was something I would not care to repeat and I can safely say that I did not feel “right” for the next couple of days.
There are many places to experience the ceremony, but, it is not for me to list them here. You need to check everything out thoroughly, there was a case a year or so ago about an American youngster dying and the shaman trying to cover his tracks by burying his body in the jungle.
